sport notes/random thoughts

27 01 2007

Okay, so I love sports.  I am excited that the Colts are in the Super Bowl and am going to cheering for them next weekend.  I know I am going against the Bears but I just like the Colts more Tony Dungy and Manning.

The next thing KSU has won the last few gamesd: MU, Baylor, Chicago State, and Iowa State.  We play Nebraska and MU next and we should win but underline the word should (we are at KSU).  The games after that will show what kind of team we are – we play KU and Texas…


On another note, I am reading Captivating and it talks about how women are wired for relationships.  I was nervous about the book with the first couple chapters talking about Eve, but some truth in Chapter 3 really hit me because it said…

“We women hide.  We hide behind our makeup.  We hide behind our humor.  We hide with angry silences and punishing withdrawls.  We hide our truest selves and offer only wanted is wanted, what is safe.   We act in self-protective ways and refuse to offer what we truly see, believe, and know.  We will not risk rejection or looking like a fool.  We have spoken in the past and been met with blank stares and mocking guffaws.  We will not do it again.  We hide because we are afraid.  We have been wounded and wounded deeply.  People have sinned against us and we have sinned as well.  To hide means to remain safe, to hurt less.  At least that is what we think.  And so by hiding, we take matters into our own hands.  We don’t return to our God with our broken and desperate hearts.  And it has never occurred to us that in all our hiding, something precious is also lost – something the world needs from us so very, very much.”

It caused me to think how I hide a lot.  It just hit home….
